So good an entire range of wheelchairs have been based upon it
Reliability, quality and an unquestionable trust that it can do whatever you ask of it – that’s what you need from a wheelchair. The Tiga has time and again proven its merit in all of these qualities and more. It’s so exceptionally good that it has subsequently folded, bulked up and stripped back over the years to create three other individual models (the FX, TX and Sub4). Why do you think it’s the day chair of choice for sporting superstars Sophie Carrigill, Abdi Jama, Gordon Reid and Alfie Hewitt? Get the day chair chosen by champions, you won’t be disappointed.
The Tiga has been a bestseller since its introduction to the range in 2013, and there’s good reason why. This lightweight wheelchair is the original aluminium wheelchair, it is the day chair that most people know of when they think of RGK. It comes with an enormous array of options for you to make it your own meaning no two Tigas ever really look the same…

Why choose made to measure?
INDIVIDUAL MEASUREMENTS Over 30 individual measurements are taken of the user for the wheelchair, so that it fits their individual requirements.
ERGONOMIC OPTIONS A wide range of ergonomic options are available to provide optimum comfort, balance and posture.
LIGHTWEIGHT AND COMPACT The lightest possible solution is achieved using individual measurements.
OPTIMUM POSTURE Sitting in the correct position can significantly reduce the risks of developing pressure related issues in the short and long term. Good health helps promote a more active lifestyle which in turn can positively impact a user’s well-being.
OPTIMUM COMFORT Feeling comfortable increases confidence which helps the user to achieve an active lifestyle. The likelihood of developing prolonged discomfort, pain and persistent injuries are significantly reduced.
